Mini Fabric Mosaic

I gave birth to this SPUR of the moment idea

over the weekend.

It really came out of necessity

because it rained most of the weekend

and I needed a project to occupy my

Little Person while I

got some work done.

Once again, it is simple and didn't

require very much supervision.

It is also a great way to use up your

fabric scraps!


Supplies Needed:
  • Elmer's glue
  • Paint brush 
  • Fabric scraps
  • Freezer paper
  • Paper plate


Step 1:
  • Squirt the glue onto the paper plate.
  • Using the paint brush, "paint" the glue onto the  D-U-L-L side of the freezer paper.
  •  Place the fabric scraps onto the damp freezer paper.
  • Over lap the fabric pieces into a pleasing arrangement.
  • Add extra glue to the edges of the fabric if necessary.
  • Allow the project to dry.

Step 3:

  • Allow your artist to sign their work!

Once again, this is a simple idea

and you never know when you will need

a simple project to occupy

you Little Ones.

Until Next Time ... Happy Quilting!


  1. What a great way to occupy....maybe you can so a meander stitch all over it and make a pillow from it?

  2. Elmers is washable, so after doing some stitching around it you can soak off the paper (this may take a bit of time but will work). Then you can use the new piece of fabric on some wonderful creation for you lovely little one. I use washable glue on my "ribbon pillows" (I am about to put up a tutorial about how I make them - need to take a couple more pictures first). It makes for a very strong piece of ribbon fabric.
